I made these two sketches in great haste, trying to capture a couple of interesting observations. The seeing on both occasions was excellent - balmy conditions, sitting there in my shorts and tee shirt, mosquitos nibbling my ankles....Ah, bliss! Sorry to my northern hemisphere friends freezing their numyaks off!

Ian,

A great deal to see in this sketch. It does look like you had great seeing from your fine, fine sketch, congratulations. Love the festoons and the GRS.

Ian, you've struck a really nice lot of conditions to rip this amount of detail. Fantastic sketch.

Mozzies nibbling your ankles? Whimp. Mate, here they are so big you can hear them change gears as the start their dive bomb!
